Tombow and Clearsnap STICK TOGETHER with simple, all-occasion cards!

 Hello and Welcome to the Tombow USA and Clearsnap Blog Hop! For this hop we swapped products that were made for each other: Tombow Adhesives and Clearsnap Foils! On this hop we will share easy, affordable and fun ways to use Clearsnap's Designer Foils with Tombow adhesive as well as other fun ways Tombow and Clearsnap products work together. 

"Stick" with us for the next two days to be inspired!


 You probably got here from Jennie’s blog but if you stumbled across my blog go the Tombow USA Blog to get this hop started right!

I have been blessed with an amazing group of friends who LOVE to send each other cards. I mean, really, who doesn't love getting a little something special in the mail? That being said, I always need to have a few unique cards on hand to send out in reply to a friend or for no reason at all!

Not always knowing what occasions will pop up, I created a set of cards that will not let me down. On a piece of smooth white cardstock, a full sized Clearnsnap Colorbox pigment ink pad makes a great background swatch of color. The variety which these pigment inks are available in is stunning. I have used the following colors: sweet melon, royal blue, sunflower, and ocean.

Once your color swatch is completely dry, use the incredible Tombow glue pen and write your greeting. No stamps. No clean up. Just write what's on your mind and in your heart! The Tombow glue pen has a great flow of adhesive that works amazing with all types of teeny mediums.

Quickly cover your glue writing in ColorBox Embossing Powder in white, shake off excess, and use a heat tool to melt/fix your powder. Mount your white cardstock onto a coordinating piece of colored cardstock and you are all done.

So, the lesson learned today, Clearsnap  and Tombow are not only amazing on their own there is no limit to their creativity and usefulness together. Ready to give some a try? Check out the generous prize pack that Clearsnap and Tombow have contributed to our hop!

Now I can see that it says Heck Yeah....and not Heek Yun...so I can quit squinting at my screen and scratching my head. LOL... Do you think I should put my glasses on???? @@

This set of cards is so pretty and fun. I don't think I've ever used my glue pen for actually writing for embossing. I need to try that!!
